Sad but true, the Memory Blanket by Georgie Nicolson requested by The Prophet (20-something son) is the last project I performing any clicking of the needles on. Not sure why I’ve lost my knitting mojo…perhaps it might be because I’ve re-established a very close relationship with my spinning wheel (more about Levana on another day.
I cast on for The Prophet’s Memory Blanket in December of 2019, and have been using leftover yarn, mostly from my hand-knit sock projects. Some of the chosen yarn brands are the following: Madeline Tosh, Miss Babs, Malabrigo, Dashing Dachs, Woolen Rabbit, sunshine Yarns, Dream in Color, Scott’s Swag, Handmaiden, DogEared Dyeworks, Spunky Eclectic, Unique Sheep, Koigu, Briar Rose Fibers, Woolmeise, Sundara Yarn, Socks that Rock and Austerman. There are a couple of squares in which I’ve lost the yarn band or never added a note to the sandwich bag housing the leftover, so unfortunately a couple of unkowns.
At least, I graduated to the 4th row so I am up to square #38…but then again that is only 38 out of 144 as ultimately the blanket will be 12 squares by 12 squares. AND I will also add a border of some sort…lots more knitting to get this moved from WIP to FO status. It is a great pattern and easy to remember…basically potato-chip knitting if you know what I mean. I really need to balance out my knitting versus spinning. Any suggestions for getting back on track with my knitting?
